Union warns there's little hope of BA row ending

UNITE said there was little hope of a breakthrough in its bitter cabin crew dispute with British Airways, despite agreeing to postpone a strike ballot.

Tony Woodley, Unite joint leader, said the failure of BA to reinstate staff travel arrangements to crew who took part strike action in March and May meant any deal was "uncertain".

The union said there was "nil" chance that it would recommend the latest offer from the airline to its members.
